Marcel Broodthaers

About Marcel Broodthaers

In 1958, Broodthaers started publishing poems and articles, illustrated with his own photographs. His first solo exhibition was held in 1964 in Galerie St. Laurent in Brussels. In 1968 he opened the Museum for Modern Art in his own house in Brussels. In this 'museum' he exhibited postcards of paintings and transport boxes for art. Broodthaers investigates in his work how art functions in different contexts, for example that of the museum. Broodthaers is an important representative of conceptual art. Since 1969, Broodthaers has lived in places such as Dusseldorf, Berlin, Cologne and London.
